Mighty minds with power of knowledge can rule the minds of millions. Knowledge plays an important role in all spheres of human life and activity. It is a powerful factor which helps man to attain success, power and position in life. There is no doubt that physical strength and money are instruments of power. A man who is physically strong or whose purse is full commands power over others. But the power of knowledge is still greater. He is, however, a thinking animal.
Knowledge directs his actions and enables him to find the difference between right and wrong, good and bad. It helps him overcome his weakness and faults and face dangers and difficulties with courage and confidence. It gives him mental, moral and spiritual advancement. Besides this, it is through knowledge that man has gained mastery over nature. But knowledge isn’t power, until it’s applied Can an axe man could cut a tree, if he just knew the technique, but didn’t perform his task! No an axe man has to lift the axe to cut the tree.
Thus knowledge not being the only component is one of the components of achieving success. Only knowledge is not enough, to grab success one has to take necessary actions at appropriate time. Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action. We would have been sitting in dark, if Edison had not invented a light bulb. If he just thought of making a light bulb but never gave effort to it , it wouldn’t have possible. He failed 100 times but still he didn’t loosed hope and finally succeeded.
Though “success is achieved by those, who try and try again’’ Yes it is true that, knowledge plays an important role in the progress of art, literature, science, philosophy and religion. But without action how can we proceed forward, we can’t progress, we can’t prosper! Also incorrect actions take us nowhere, and land us into ditch. They even makes the situation more difficult! And leads us to failure . Thus knowledge and actions must go hand in with each other and thus it’s the correct saying that “Knowledge is power but actions get the things done ! ”
